You know, people come up to me all the time as I’m out raking leaves, and they ask me two questions: One, what should I get my mother for Halloween? And two, why are you in my yard at 3AM? I have this to say to them: Fresh graves don’t cover themselves, and Moms go wild for Dracula: Company of Monsters.
See, Drac #3 comes out Wed. the 27th, just in time for Christine ODonnell’s* favorite holiday. No, not Anti-Masturbation Day (that’s in November) — I’m talking Halloween. The nice people over at Robot 6 ROBOT 666 are running a big juicy 10-page preview of the issue.
I really enjoyed writing this issue, because it introduces the fightin’ Stefanescus from Basov, Romania — a family of kick-ass vampire hunters. The Drac Kill Krewe (as they were instantly nicknamed by editor Dafna Pleban), feature Scott Godlewski’s fabulous character designs, and I had a blast working with them on fleshing these guys out. They show up right on page 1 of that preview. Oh, and also check out the Drac containment vest, which may be the coolest thing that’s sprung from Busiek’s mind since… well, he thinks of awesome ideas pretty much on an hourly basis, so let’s just say, Since Lunch.
*I fervently hope that when people stumble across this blog post 18 months from now, they’ll say, Christine who?
